, public comment is closed. supervisor olage >> yeah, i just wanted to thank everyone for coming out. i wanted to mention that, as i commented earlier, the language before you is significantly different from the original language i introduced over the summer, which provided for damages and additions to the list of harassment. it was significantly watered-down in part because there was major push back from i think the apartment association and others and through the mayor's office and so we worked with the mayor's office, the city attorney and the rent board to get this to a place where it was more, in a place where we could provide some protection against harassment to tenants but not at the level that we originally had hoped to place something on the ballot. so we did pull that measure from the ballot, worked with again the rent board, the city attorney, and the mayor's office to come up with language that we felt was more acceptable but still provided some basic protections to tenants who in a city where it is one of the most expensive rental markets possibly in the world, certainly

olage said, this has been different, this is different than the original version but i think that it's a step in the right direction. the last thing i'll say about it really quick is that currently the way that tenants get their issues addressed is through a lawyer and there aren't a lot of attorneys out there who are trying to take individual cases about harassment. most attorneys want a class action lawsuit for any sort of tenant-land lord issues. i'm out of time. thank you. >> thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is bart murphy, i'm a san francisco rent board commissioner for the last 17 years. i'm a san francisco landlord. i am asking you to continue this matter to the call of the chair, not that i or other people might be specifically opposed to the issue, it's just that it's come up, i would suggest that the committee or the proposer to the committee is rushing their fences somewhat in putting this on for today with a referral to the full board tomorrow and that this matter would benefit from some consideration both at the rent board commission and furt
, absolutely livid. they should be well aware of this. supervisor olage has long been invested in this issue just like the rest of us who are also invested in it, and this ordinance needs to pass regardless of politicking about it, regardless of when it's presented, where it's presented, it needs to be passed. that's all i have to say, thank you. >> dear members of the land use and economic development committee, my name is lucia kimbell and i coordinate the office for household justice formerly known as st. peters household committee. we provide counseling to tenants for over 25 years now, a bilingual tenants. i'm here to urge your aye vote. our office takes on cases of landlord harassment every day and the level of harassment our client base confronts is egregious, both in person and over the phone to threats and actual physical assault. prop m that was so hard fought and won in the aftermath of the first dot com boom, especially with support of supervisors like yourself are being undermined by this increased harassment especially in a moment where further tech jobs threatens further d
